APEC: Dispatch Vietnam
The President of Vietnam came here hours later. No further pictures were taken and the scenery didn’t get any better than this.
We were just the culinary support with 2 of our servers laced in (thank goodness). The guests enjoyed themselves throughly standing outside in pitch blackness for the first house, the President nearly stumbling once over benches by the pool. Eventually they recovered from the ‘dark hour’ and sat to enjoy some of Hawaii’s pristine food products and spectacular conversation (along with some wine compliments of Sam’s Club.)
The next night it was the Prime Minister of Russia and they came directly to Memoirs. That night will be marked as one of the greatest parties I have ever been involved with. I cannot post the reasons why on the web, but get at me if you want to know. All and all, it was a great week for everyone on the ball.
I’m going to go surf country for two days.
